If a sharp of flat is inserted into a measure is it canceled at the end of the measure? Or should be played as a sharp or flat through out the piece.

I think you mean an accidental. It only applies to the bar you are in...unless it is slurred over to the next bar.

tied over, not slurred. Even with a slur(changing from one note to a different note without tonguing) the note would revert back to the key signature. A tie (two of the SAME note connected) would keep the accidental in effect until the tie is over.
In answer to your question, when the flat or sharp is different from the key signature, it is called an accidental. It is cancelled at the measure line.
